Learning Center - Preserving Our Seeds and Farmer Knowledge

"Preserving our Seeds and Farmer Knowledge"

This inagural exhibit of the Learning Center showcases efforts by elders and leaders from 12 tribes to preserve dry farming practices that have allowed native peoples to flourish for thousands of years.

The new exhibit offers youth the opportunity to learn about traditional tribal farming through hands-on activities and interactive videos. A series of free monthly workshops on watershed restoration, heirloom seed preservation, and traditional farming kicks off this spring.

We need a learning place within our community open to everyone, from kids to elders. Only by bridging the generation gap can we save our culture. –Alicia Tsosie, Food Corps
